IEC 61010-031 第二版制定了新的工程修订并将取代原2002年发行的IEC 61010-031第一版与2008年发行的修订。IEC 61010-031制定了手持式与手操作探棒组件的形式与其相关配件的安全要求，这类探棒可以是直接固定在设备上或是设备可分离的配件。与前一版相比，此版本包含了下列显著的变更以及一些其他更改：
取代33V rms，46.7V peak 或70V dc，电压超过30V rms，42.4V peak 或60V dc即视为危险带电；
重新编写与IEC 61010-1相关的绝缘要求(6.5) 与测试程序(6.6.5) ， 制定并新增固态绝缘与薄片绝缘要求；
将术语“MEASUREMENT CATEGORY I”以“not rated for measurements within MEASUREMENT CATEGORIES II, III, or IV”取代；
修订表面温度限制(Clause 10)以符合IEC Guide 117的限制；
IEC 61010-031 Ed 2 has been published in May 2015
IEC 61010-031 specifies safety requirements for hand-held and hand-manipulated probe assemblies of the types and their related accessories. They may be fixed to the equipment or be detachable accessories for the equipment.
The second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002 and Amendment 1: 2008 and includes the following significant changes from the first edition, as well as numerous other changes:
Voltages above the levels of 30V r.m.s, 42.4V peak, or 60V d.c. are deemed to be hazardous live instead of 33V r.m.s, 46.7V peak, or 70V d.c.
Serving is now included within the scope.
Extended environmental conditions are included within the scope.
New terms have been defined.
Tests for reasonably foreseeable misuse have been added, in particular for fuses.
Additional instruction requirements for probe assembly operation have been specified.
Limit values for accessible parts and for measurement for voltage and touch current have been modified.
Spacings requirements for mating of connectors have been modified.
Probe tips and spring-loaded clips requirements have been modified. The protective fingerguard replace the barrier with new requirements.
Insulation requirements (6.5) and test procedures (6.6.5) have been rewritten and aligned when relevant with IEC 61010-1. Specific requirements have been added for solid insulation and thin-film insulation.
The terminology for measurement category I has been replaced with the designation “not rated for measurements within measurement categories II, III, or IV”.
The flexing/pull test (18.104.22.168) has been partially rewritten.
Surface temperature limits (Clause 10) have been modified to conform to the limits of IEC Guide 117.
Requirements for resistance of probe wires to mechanical stresses have been added in Clause 12 and a new Annex D.
Requirements have been added regarding the prevention of hazard from arc flash and short-circuits for spring loaded clips.
A new informative Annex E defines the dimension of the 4mm banana connectors.
